Welcome to all readers of our eNews
IDEAS is keen to step in to resolving our uncertainty of future service delivery now that the outcome of the federal election is known and the new ministry has been sworn in.
We look forward to meeting with Family, Social Services and Government Services team including Minister Anne Ruston and Minister
Stuart Robert as soon as possible. To stay up to date with our activities, follow us on Facebook or twitter.
The NSW government have reiterated that the provision of information is the responsibility of the Federal Government and not the State and have reconfirmed that they will not be reinstating any funding to IDEAS for our Information service. The NSW government has extended funding until 2020 for PossABLE Advocacy which provides individual advocacy to the South West and South East of Sydney, the Illawarra, South Coast and Southern Highlands regions of NSW. This service can be accessed through the toll free number 1800 RIGHTS (744 487) or in person at 1/300 Queens Street Campbelltown.
We have a great team of people at IDEAS who are very passionate about the work they do and have a strong commitment to providing relevant, timely and accurate information to allow people with disability be more informed consumers. June 30 is not far away, and we hope to continue to provide our services into the future.
IDEAS Executive Officer
